As I said earlier, Madison has been showing some progress lately and that brings HOPE to this sometimes weary mama! As I have shared before anything can "set her off" and in the past, once she gets upset she cant calm herself down. While we have seen some big improvement in this area over the past 2 weeks (Praise the Lord), I will let this next picture show what some days are like. Keep in mind this was all triggered because she could not reach her pencil in the pouch on the back of the seat and she wouldn't wait for me to stop the car and get it. Seems silly to us but it does show some of the hurt and brokeness deep inside of her. This crying episode lasted 20 minutes.
But tomorrows a new day and most of the time we get to see this side of her (see video below) where she dresses up and makes me sit down and watch her "perform". I think she is singing Jesus loves me but I'm not quite sure :-)
Madison loves her stuffed animals and she is such a good little "mommy" to them. I love watching her play, feed & read to them.
You cant help but smile when you see this face!
I cant believe Madison's been here for 8 months!!!
